@stormchild What’s so great about repositioning? Or does it have other extras?

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild Strange setting. It *looks* like it just changes when iCal opens, but without Push it stays closed.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@otolithe Thanks, but I haven’t logged out of my iTunes account.

via Hibari in reply to otolithe

You would think that with Apple pushing iCloud, I wouldn’t have to turn on Photo Stream every time I launch Aperture.

via Hibari

@andrewabernathy Yeah, I think that’s how you have to do it. :-(

via Hibari in reply to andrewabernathy

@danielpunkass Could be. The odd thing is that for me it didn’t get bad until 10.7.3 (IIRC).

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Both AppleCare and the local provider assured me they had the exact same tools and diagnostics.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass I guess it’s worth a shot when it’s convenient and this is no longer my main Mac.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass So they think my problem is a software issue, and I tend to agree—it matches the driver bug others are seeing since Lion.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass After escalating, I got the local authorized service provider to do the full diagnostic hardware test, which the Mac passed.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass AppleCare (more than one guy) treated it as random Internet hearsay. Had me reboot twice and told me it was all fixed.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass You would think so from reading that, but I haven’t even been able to get AppleCare to acknowledge that page exists.

@bbedit_hints @height8 Is this better than typing “man” into a @bbedit shell worksheet?

via Hibari in reply to height8

@grynspan I’m thinking of this as a user. I will probably prefer different code fonts on different screens.

via Hibari in reply to grynspan

@mrgan Gonna be interesting to see how to work the font and anti-aliasing settings with one retina display and one (main one) low-dpi.

via Hibari in reply to mrgan

@retrophisch Yeah, the previous photo was six years old…

via Hibari in reply to retrophisch

Really not convinced by this prevalent argument that iCloud requires MAS because Apple’s 30% cut pays for it. Plus, free apps can use it.

via Hibari

@drewmccormack I’m sure they’ll submit on time. Let’s hope it’s a speedy review process.

via Hibari in reply to drewmccormack

@ianbeck Seriously. Nothing drains good will faster than contacting support and getting no response whatsoever. Common with iOS apps. :-(

via Hibari in reply to ianbeck

@mhenders Looks interesting, but I thought the chapters would be longer than one page…

via Hibari in reply to mhenders

@danielpunkass I seem to remember that one of the big selling points of OS X was that it was less crashy.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@optshiftk Wow, I bet that’s a common class name.

via Hibari in reply to optshiftk

@JeannieRichard No record of that old address. Please e-mail me

via Hibari in reply to JeannieRichard

@JeannieRichard Please send me an e-mail about these issues.

via Hibari in reply to JeannieRichard

@JeannieRichard Yep, I ended up reinstalling. I should probably start making backups of the recovery partition.

via Hibari in reply to JeannieRichard

Nvidia driver kernel panic bug definitely not 3rd-party related since it reliably occurs during the second phase of the Lion installer!

via Hibari

Well, I got the kextcache sorted out. Repartitioned so Recovery HD’s no longer full; installed Lion; migrated my files from clone.

via Hibari

@nedley I tried that, but thanks anyway.

via Hibari in reply to nedley

@JeannieRichard @dnanian Yes, I tried that. Looking at logs, I suspect the problem is that Recovery HD is full.

via Hibari in reply to JeannieRichard

@dnanian I did “sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel; sudo kextcache -system-caches” and that didn’t help. Better way?

via Hibari in reply to dnanian

@corrosive6809 I’m guessing something like that. But the uninstaller said it rebuilt the caches. And I verified that directory was touched.

via Hibari in reply to corrosive6809

Anyone know how to uninstall Little Snitch (for testing)? I ran the uninstaller, rebooted, verified .kext is gone; still shows in kextstat.

via Hibari

@stormchild Yeah, the undo. Plus, quickly tiling windows side-by-side without being one or two pixels off.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

So, after saying that I didn’t need Moom for zooming windows, I did just that about 10 times this evening. It’s great. http://t.co/xcaVWc1b

via Hibari

@danwood Well, I haven’t seen any of them yet. :)

via Hibari in reply to danwood

@mattstevens @danielpunkass Right. Or if you get a new Mac and so the GUID doesn’t match.

via Hibari in reply to mattstevens

@danielpunkass I like (and have implemented) your way, but it does require that you continue to have a launchable app in the store.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@nriley Feels wrong to reward bug vendor with a big hardware purchase, but this is ridiculous. Classic Mac OS never crashed this much.

via Hibari in reply to nriley

@nriley Same here. 16 GB would be nice. Plus, hopefully the new one will have video drivers that don’t kernel panic three times per day.

via Hibari in reply to nriley

@nriley Yes, that was my first thought. I hope font smoothing finally looks good at retina resolution.

via Hibari in reply to nriley

@chuanp Which means iPad 1s don’t get it.

via Hibari in reply to chuanp

@pinatubo2000 The comparison I’d like to see is with the 2011 (or 2010) MacBook Pro with SSD.

via Hibari in reply to pinatubo2000

@mhenders When I type a note on my iPhone, the light’s still red when I’m done. It turns green faster if I try to use Siri.

via Hibari in reply to mhenders

Aperture 3.3 turned Photo Stream back on and still has support for MobileMe publishing.

via Hibari

@stormchild The new one sounds good; I just don’t like the idea of old documents silently changing or not working, e.g. iMovie, FCP, etc.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild Anything that says Legacy is subject to dropping, probably sooner than you think.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild Hmm, wonder how long they’ll support the legacy module…I don’t want to have to go through all my photos.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild What happens to adjustments I’ve already made when they change how the tools worok?

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild I mostly use Git Tower, and sometimes I use SourceTree because it’s better at searching.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@lapcat Cool. One of the reasons I stopped using Preview in Lion is that I didn’t want it auto-saving everything.

via Hibari in reply to lapcat

So I guess the reason the Apple support guy never called me back is that he no longer works at Apple.

via Hibari

The weird thing is that you can still see “more” with the high-DPI non-Retina MacBook Pro.

via Hibari

@cedge318 @DrunkenTech I can’t see the original tweet. Please send an e-mail if you’d like a response.

via Hibari in reply to cedge318

@lapcat @danielpunkass One of the issues is that PyObjC is compiled against a particular version of Python, and newer OS Xs drop older ones.

via Hibari in reply to lapcat

@lapcat @danielpunkass Not sure it’s documented, but it’s been true since I’ve followed PyObjC around 10.4. I recently confirmed with DTS.

via Hibari in reply to lapcat

@danielpunkass Yes, Apple recommends that apps include their own Python. Otherwise future OS versions may break compatibility.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Cool. The deletion problem is important. I’m seeing this from the other side: the wrong file getting imported into my app.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass I’ve also seen lots of reports that “selection” doesn’t work properly, even when “reveal” wasn’t used.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@jsnell Interesting. So it doesn’t work at all if you’re in an area with no network service?

via Hibari in reply to jsnell

@drewmccormack The odd thing to me is the rush to require it before the technology was close to ready. Does that make it faster long-term?

via Hibari in reply to drewmccormack

@siegel May the odds be ever in your favor.

via Hibari in reply to siegel

@dinh_viet_hoa For now, yes, although I’m not sure if anything happens on the receiving end when Growl itself becomes sandboxed.

via Hibari in reply to dinh_viet_hoa

@dinh_viet_hoa My understanding is that, before 1.3, the Growl SDK requires a temporary Mach entitlement to post via distributed objects.

via Hibari in reply to dinh_viet_hoa

@nriley As far as I can tell there’s no need to rush. Old version is solid. New network/GCD implementation needs to be reworked post-1.4.

via Hibari in reply to nriley

The experiment of going back to the Growl 1.2.3 SDK seems to be working. No more CPU spikes or crashes. (But it’s not sandboxable.)

via Hibari

@danielpunkass Cool. That’s been on my to-do list for a while. Surprised more apps don’t do this.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Is that built-in, or pulled from your server?
